About Us

Intrepid explorers can step on The Great Christmas Expedition to encounter exotic illuminated animal characters in nine new fantastical worlds. Journey to the bottom of the sea in ‘Underwater’ to meet a huge octopus, then soar up to the heavens for a Night Sky Adventure, frolicking among the clouds and stars in the moonlight.

There’s always something new to do and learn at Chester Zoo. Whether you’re greeting arrivals such as a baby black lemur or finding out how many bones there are in a giraffe’s neck at one of the daily animal talks. Meet the zoo’s feathered friends at the lunchtime bird feeds, and drop in for Science at the Zoo or Discover sessions to hear the latest conservation updates. The UK’s leading zoo is home to more than 500 species of endangered and exotic animals and it’s also the HQ of a team whose efforts to preserve biodiversity span the globe, with initiatives such as the award-winning Act For Wildlife campaign, in which you, too, can become a wildlife champion.
